to look at it right now. when people talk about obama care they forget about all the positives. the fact that right now for me in college i'm not paying any higher premium. i'm allowed to stay on my parents' health insurance until i'm 26 because of obama care. when i end up finding my own plan which i do plan on doing once i turn 26, i will not be denied for any pre-existing conditions, i'm not going to be denied because i'm a woman, i won't pay any higher charges. i think those are very important things to focus on but back to your point about student loan debt, i don't necessarily see it as a trade-off that way because i know a lot of people will not be able to be covered because of their parents because they're able to stay with them until they're 26 but with student loan, that's something that's tackled in a separate way but putting the two together -- >> i don't know, charlie, it's just expenses. you all have expenses, i got expenses, and i'm just trying to figure out how this is going to work out. look, what do numbers show from this harvard poll, it's that young people are going t
security did, medicare did, medicaid did, civil rights did. obama, in an act of what i would call constitutional indecency because it is legal to do it, but it isn't traditional in any way, he passed obama care without a single member supporting him in either house from the other side. against public opinion. after we had an off year election in massachusetts where the candidate for the republicans ran on a platform of opposing obama care. so they shoved it down the throat of the american people, through congress on a lenl sl legislative maneuver called reconciliation. he's standing in the wind as obama care collapses around him. he didn't do what fdr and lbj did. they understood that these majorities are temporary. obama seized on the temporary majority in 2009 and 10 and passed something the american people rejected. now he's reaping the whirlwind from it. >> he seems to be confused or indignant. i don't know what the word is. that the republicans aren't rushing in to try to sal vanl the -- salvage the law as opposed to criticizing it. they don't like the law. they have never be

at that point so different than the way mitch mcconnell handled the election of obama. so different. to set it up that way, the juxtaposition, they were willing, mcconnell people on the far right were willing to destroy the country to destroy obama. whereas to succeed in a country he live f.w. de klerk was wi to see it transformed to black rule so it could be done successfully so he could have his country have a better future. reverend, i owe it to you. i think that is the key statement about what happened yesterday, the loss of mandela and what his history is about and the key statement of why this has been so poisonous the last five years. we have real people in this country with real power and status who have used that status of power to hurt the country so they could hurt the president. that's the most damming assessment i've heard and i think the truest. >> an important assessment. chris matthews, thank you. as always. you can see chris's full interview with president obama inch a reairing of "hardball" and of course catch him every day at 7:00 eastern. thank you to nick chrisoff of th

's right, george. that photo is of a chance encounter that senator barack obama had in a washington hotel room with nelson mandela back in 2005. a copy of it was also in mandela's office in south africa. that is somebody who the president saw, not just as a hero, as a great leader. but also as the person who awakened him to the outside world. in a sense, listening to the president, you get the sense that there would not be a president obama if it were not for nelson mandela. the very first public speech that barack obama ever gave was as a young college student in 1979, for mandela's cause, speaking out against apartheid in south africa. now, president obama hoped to meet one last time with nelson mandela in june when he traveled to south africa. i was on that trip. mandela was in no condition to meet with the president. but he did visit robben island. and there, you see him in the tiny cell that nelson mandela spent 17 years of his years in imprisonment. i can tell you, george, that was quite a trip to africa for the first african-american president. but without question, the emotional h
zuma announced the passing of nelson mandela to south africa and the world that president obama took to the briefing room to talk about his reminiscenses and everything that nelson mandela meant to him. some time in the evening, you are right. the president placed a phone call to jacob zuma. he expressed condolences from himself and michelle obama. he called nelson mandela a man of kindness and humility, influencing his own life, and the president only met nelson mandela one time as a senator. he had visited south africa twice, once as a senator and once this past june with his family, unable to meet the ailing nelson mandela at this point. the president took to the briefing room, talked about the inspiration that nelson mandela was for him, talked about the anecdote. nelson mandela and a struggle against apartheid, inspired president obama as a student in the late '70s, and early '80s, to become involved in politics for the first time. let's listen to what obama had to say. >> we will not see the likes of nelson mandela again. it falls to us as best we can for the example that we se

obama on the air right now that would be better than the minimum wage. because recall, 40% of unemployed people today are long-term unemployed, disproportionately in the bottom 20% and those people will be hurt by minimum wage increases. but you and i agree that minimum wage people could make more money to support their families better. what's a better policy starting right now that president obama should be talking about instead of what he's doing, which is hurting poor people such they can make more money no matter how much it costs. >> look, just to be clear. i like the question, but i don't agree with the premise. i do think a moderate increase would help. to answer the part of your question that i agree with, here's what i think he should do. the earned income tax is a very important pro work subsidy. this is a good way to help low-wage people. but for childless adults, adults who don't have kids, it's rea y really -- i would increase the childless adult part of the earned income credit so that single folks can make a decent wage, as well. >> so you -- will you acknowledge i didn't
at it as almost a proxy for what had happened in america during the civil rights movement and i think it awakened and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa in the coming days for the funeral, this will be an important event not only for president obama but for the united states. >> yes, and again, wolf, mandela has not been himself for a number of years. i think it was understandable he wasn't able to meet with the president. mandela say man of such great pride. the last few years when his memory was failing him, he felt awkward, seeing people, but i do think it's a great opportunity for president obama, president obama has had an important and deep focus on africa, the young african leaders initiative that he started as something that he cares a great deal about, so i
